2022 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
Grab a hot cup of cocoa and turn up the Michael Bublé because it’s that time of the year again! Even with the magic of the twinkling lights, giggling children, and decked out stores, finding the perfect gift is no easy feat. enduraLAB is here to help!
We asked our team to chime in on what they can’t live without. Check out their recommendations below.
AN ENDURALAB GIFT CARD
The #1 absolute best gift you could give someone is the gift of fitness at the best gym in DFW! You can give the gift of fitness in any dollar amount, for personal training sessions, group class membership or merchandise. To purchase a gift car, email email@example.com or call us at 817-904-8638.
Roll out all that holiday tension with the fitness essential that hurts so good. Perfect for a warmup or recovery session, every athlete needs one of these bad boys in their lives.
Lacrosse balls are great to have on hand. Whether you are in or out of the gym, it is an effective and affordable tool. Next time you see Coach Isis, ask about her technique when it comes to using a lacrosse ball while driving ;)
Girls…and guys! Sweaty, greasy hair is not cute. Enter dry shampoo. Yes, dry shampoo has been in the spotlight recently for all the wrong reasons, but there are still safe options on the market! Check out a few highly ranked dry shampoos below:
WUSTHOF CHEF’S KNIVES
They say abs are made in the kitchen. Weel, every kitchen needs a quality set of knives and Wusthof provides just that. Give the chef (or amateur chef) in your life a set of the best cutting knives. The handles resist fading, discoloration, heat, and impact. Quadruple win!
TRAMONTINA PROFESSIONAL ALUMINUM NONSTICK RESTAURANT FRY PAN
Along the same lines, a pan is another essential kitchen item. This pan is arguably the BEST non-stick pan of all time—not to mention dishwasher safe. You also don’t have to worry about toxic materials (like PTFE) leaching into your food.
YETI YONDER WATER BOTTLE
YETI Yonder has entered the conversation. We all know by now that YETI can pretty much do no wrong. This NEW release comes in 4 simple, yet trendy colors. We all need an awesome water bottle to motivate us to stay hydrated, right? Don’t wait until the new year to start leveling up your hydration
Highly recommended by Coach Elizabeth, DZ Nuts should be in every endurance athletes gym bag. Eliminate chafing with this paraben free, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory chamois cream! For women, the Bliss cream contains pre and probiotics that support beneficial skin flora growth.
These grips are perfect for the deadlift enthusiast in your life. Gotta protect those wrists and hands while working on that deadlift PR!
LEVER POWERLIFTING BELT
An essential for Coach Blake, this full grain sole leather belt is made in the good ol’ USA, and designed to support and protect the back during heavy lifts. Basically, this is a brag-worthy gift for all of the bodybuilders and powerlifters in your life–or even those wanting to take their weight lifting to another level.
Jump ropes are no longer reserved for elementary school recess, friends. Not only is it reminiscent of the good ol’ days, it is also a great cardio blaster and helps with balance and coordination. Our favorite ropes are Rogue custom RX Jump Ropes.
We all have that particular individual in our lives with toes that even a pedicurist would have nightmares over. Time for some toe spacers. Toe spacers allow for your toes to spread more naturally. We cram our toes into shoes on a daily basis, leading to all sorts of foot problems. Our feet are very important as we age, and the increase in wearing constricting shoes limits the dexterity of our toes. In turn, this greatly impacts the health of our lower legs. Fact, Coach Hargrave even packs these when he goes on vacation.
Don’t settle for the standard Apple Watch for tracking your important fitness data. Instead, we recommend all things Garmin!
Coach Lee’s personal favorite is the Fenix 7. When asked what he likes about it, his response was, “everything.” This is a multisport watch, perfect for someone participating in various disciplines (i.e. hiking, running, indoor treadmill, indoor rowing, mountain biking, etc). The icing on the cake is that it also tracks things such as sleep stats and breathing.
For the runners in your life, you can’t beat the Forerunner series.
Coach Mark votes for anything NIKE. We all agree and believe everyone needs a solid pair of shoes to keep up with their fitness endeavors. If you’re looking for a shoe that’s perfect for training and still stylish, Nike Metcons are where it’s at.
If you’ve ventured over to REBOOT, you know that we love our Hyperice! And it just so happens that THE Patrick Mahomes does, too (shameless plug). From the tried-and-true Hypervolt to the new Core Meditation device, these gifts are sure to be a hit this holiday season!
For a little stocking stuffer greatness, Chomps are the perfect grab-and-go protein snack. Made up of sustainably sourced protein with no hidden or harmful ingredients, you simply can’t beat ‘em! Our favs are the jalapeno beef and pepperoni seasoned turkey, but you truly can’t go wrong with any flavors. You can find them at Trader Joe’s, too!
